Produce Update

Bed 1 - already looking established

Bed 1 – already looking established

The end of April and the veg beds are now fully planted and starting to fill out.

There are four veg beds which I’ve planted out with a few seedlings, but mainly directly sewn seeds.

Bed 1: The most established – asparagus (will take a few years before cropping), scarlet runner beans, broccoli, brussels sprouts, celery, sugar snap peas, leeks, radishes and purple king beans.

Bed 2: garlic – white and purple, broad beans, carrots (a few varieties), beetroot, mixed salad leaves, spinach, swede, butter beans.

Bed 3: carrots, white and brown onions, snake beans, turnips, sweet corn – baby and bantam, mini cauliflowers, chicory, fennel and sugar snap peas

Bed 4: The Berry Bed – rasberry, elderberry, blueberry, boysenberry, bayberry, loganberry, youngberry, white currant and, of course, lots of strawberries.

The back fence still has some broad beans, peas, beans, eggplant and chillies as well.

In a week or two I can order seed potatoes for my potato bags. Hopefully most survive and I have something to show for all the effort. This is my first year with a veg garden so I’m sure there will be lots of lessons as we go.
